Terms & Conditions
- TERMS OF SERVICES PROVIDED BY VCP
Vet Comp & Pen Medical Consulting, LLC (VCP) is a pre-filing and post-filing consulting firm that does not REPRESENT veterans before the VA in connection with any claim for VA benefits.
Our medical consulting services are intended to enhance your ability to uncover all of the legitimate VA disabilities you may be eligible for and best present the necessary evidence to the VA so you can receive an accurate and timely VA Rating with the least amount hassle.
If you are in the process of appealing a VA rating decision, we regularly work in conjunction with an Accredited Agent or Attorney that a client has already retained. If you are seeking an Agent or Attorney to represent you for an appeal, please click HERE to view the VA’s directory of Accredited Agents and Attorneys.
We NEVER charge a fee for the preparation of a claim package and provide those services free of charge to all of our clients who have executed our Medical Consulting Services Agreement (MCSA). Our MCSA details the fees associated with our pre-filing and post-filing consulting. Please click HERE to review our MCSA.
We NEVER charge any up-front consulting fees. If you do not receive an increase in your VA disability rating/pay then you DO NOT OWE US A PENNY! However, after services are rendered and an increase in disability benefits has been awarded by the VA, there are no refunds.
If you do receive an increase, the above mentioned MCSA stipulates that our standard fee will be equal to the first five months’ worth of the increase in your VA disability compensation paid out over 10 months. So if you currently receive $1000 per month for your VA disability benefits and we help you get to $1500 per month, you agree to pay us the first 5 months’ worth of the $500 monthly increase for a total of $2500 ($250 per month for 10 months).
After services have been provided by Vet Comp & Pen Medical Consulting, there are no refunds. We do not bill until AFTER you have received an increase in your VA disability benefits.
DO NOT CONTRACT WITH VET COMP & PEN MEDICAL CONSULTING IF:
A) You cannot afford it. We don’t charge any fees up front and you owe us NOTHING if you don’t receive an increase BUT if you can’t afford to pay us our fee out of the benefits you currently are NOT receiving once you do start receiving those payments in the future, we are not a good fit for you
B) You won’t do anything with the information and consulting we provide you
C) You have a habit or interest in being untruthful regarding you VA disabilities and intend to defraud the federal government
It’s really important stuff. We took the legalese the lawyers wrote and translated it into readable English. So be a smart veteran and read the stuff on this page. It could prevent you from hearing from our lawyers, or worse yet, from really nasty people, like prosecutors.
Here’s the deal:
We run this site so that veterans like you can use it for information and education. So go ahead and browse around all you like. You can even download stuff from the site but only for non-commercial, personal use. If you do, though, don’t fool around with the copyright and other notices all over the stuff. They’re there for a really good reason. And don’t even think about distributing, modifying, transmitting, reusing, re-posting, or anything else uncool with any of the stuff, including the text, images, audio, and video, for public or commercial purposes unless we give you written permission. And it’s not likely we will.
If you visit our site, you’re also legally obligated to [read: stuck with] the terms and conditions listed below and any other law or regulation that applies to the site, the Internet, the World Wide Web, or Newberry, Florida. You shouldn’t access or browse the site if you have any problem with that, because once you start, there’s no turning back — you are bound by [read: stuck with] the terms and conditions.
Top Ten Rules for Veterans visiting our site:
1. For everyone’s sake, just assume that everything on the site is copyrighted unless we say it’s not. So you can’t use the stuff except how we say you can on this page or anywhere else on the site without our written permission. And like we said before, it’s not likely we’ll give you permission anyway. In fact, even if we wanted to, the lawyers are likely to veto any deal anyway. So it’s better you don’t even ask.
2. While we try to include accurate stuff on the site, we’re not promising you it’s accurate. In fact, we’re not promising you anything. So if you use stuff on the site, you’re using it at your own risk. Don’t call us if there’s a problem because we assume no liability or responsibility for errors or omissions on the site.
3. We and anybody else who helped us create, produce, or deliver the site are not liable for any damages you suffer when you use it. In particular, the lawyers want you to know that our disclaimer includes “direct, incidental, consequential, indirect, or punitive damages arising out of your access to, or use of, the site. Without limiting the foregoing, everything on the site is provided to you ‘AS IS’ WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON INFRINGEMENT.
Please note that some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so some of the above exclusions may not apply to you. Check your local laws for any restrictions or limitations regarding the exclusion of implied warranties. ” Here’s the bottom line — we’re not responsible if you’re browsing around and the site damages you or your computer or infects it with any nasty viruses. We sure hope that doesn’t happen, but if it does, don’t call us.
4. Pictures of people or places shown on the site are either our property or someone else’s property we’re using with their permission. No matter what, it’s definitely not your property. You or any of your friends can’t use it unless we said you could on this page or somewhere else on the site. And guess what — we won’t say yes. So be careful because unauthorized use may violate all sorts of nasty laws. Be smart, keep the stuff you download or are provided by us to yourself.
5. There are also a lot of trademarks, logos, and service marks on the site that either we own or we’re using with someone else’s permission. So don’t think you have any kind of license or right to use them, because you don’t and we’re not about to give you one. If you don’t leave them alone and mess with our trademarks, logos and service marks on our site, we’ll probably go ballistic, so will the companies that own the other trademarks, logos and service marks. That means that we’re likely to sue you or to ask a prosecutor to come after you for messing around with our property or the property of others.
6. You’ll probably notice we’ve linked our site to lots of others. While that’s cool, it doesn’t mean we’ve looked at all those sites, much less checked them out periodically to see what’s going on. So don’t blame us if some site you link to is bad or has stuff on it that offends you or your pets. Go ahead and link, but remember, you’re doing it at your risk.
7. Software that we use on this Site is protected by all sorts of patriotic U.S. laws. Because of that, you can’t download or send the software to anyone in the vacation travel spots of Cuba, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Iran, Syria, or any other country where United States has embargoed goods; or (get this) to anyone on the United States Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals, the U.S. Commerce Department’s Table of Deny Orders, or. As if that were not tough enough, if you live in or are a national of any of those lovely places, you’re not even supposed to be reading this page, so beat it!
8. We’re also allowed to change this page and anything else on the site any time we want to. That’s because it’s ours and we have the programmers who can do it. If we do change the page, then you’re bound by [read: stuck with] those changes, too, whenever you visit our site.
9. VCP has the ability to terminate our consulting agreement with you for any reason which may also include:
i. You fail to comply with our instructions
ii. VCP “feels” you are acting in an unethical manner to defraud the VA and dishonor fellow veterans
iii. You fail to make timely payment on any payments due payable to VCP
10. If either of us wants to make something of it and wants to “sue” (a dirty word) then we have to follow these rules of engagement:
This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of Florida, without regard to principles of conflict of laws.
To the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate Vet Comp & Pen Medical Consulting’s intellectual property rights, Vet Comp & Pen Medical Consulting may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the State of Florida, and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
